I didn’t really know how to play a female city elf chara after that intro besides playing her as someone who wanted to die, but the game wouldn’t let her
And I mean. Literally everybody wants you to know you’re beneath them. It’s universal. Do other characters get this?
@sophia I've not read the piece yet mind you, but at the time it felt a little eye-rolly to me because I got the impression they were trying very hard to get across the point that it's a Mature game for Mature Gamers etc
(I did play as the female city elf but it's been a few years and I remember very little of the game other than Dwarves saying "sodding" with pronounced American accents feeling extremely out of place)
it's been a while since I've played, but not that I recall. I was a wood elf or whatever, so I still got some of the elf/women stuff but it didn't feel as bad. iirc dwarves are also treated kinda bad but since they're more sovereign the humies are a little more friendly
@sophia I remember the first thing friends told me was NOT to start with her. I went back years later so I could see what happened but they told me it was fucked up and it would be too painful and an awful way to start play. It’s...still a lot years later, tbh. For all the Shep traumas in Mass Effect (my Bioware of choice) there’s just nothing like it
